Tied for the SEC lead with six sacks, Lewis regaining his health is translating to the field. He leads the team in quarterback pressures with 12 and tackles for loss with nine. Against Arkansas, the linebacker lingered in the Razorbacks backfield, leading to six QB pressures and forcing the quarterback to throw an errant pass directly into the arms of a streaking Trevon Diggs, who scored on an 84-yard pick-six.

On Saturday, Lewis relishes the opportunity to feast on the LSU offensive line. To hamper Heisman front-runner Joe Burrow and company, Lewis affecting the quarterback is paramount, particularly battling tackles Austin Deculus and Saahdiq Charles. He could binge on the two mammoth tackles coming off the edge with his blazing speed and savvy tenacity.
